The veteran CPI politburo member and ex. Minister of Assam, Pramud Gogoi, in a press meet on Friday at Sivasagar again tabled his demand for declaration of Assam as tribal state. He raised this year long demand for protection of identity, literature-culture and assets of our state.


Mr Gogoi demands that for the existence of our historical identity the Article 370 of the Indian constitution should be imposed in our state. He again mentions due to the imposition that article the existence of Kasmiri people fully under protection though their population is lower than than the other people.


Like in the neighbouring state Nagaland, due to the article 371 (a) of the Indian constitution, the Naga people has got their right on resources of their state. He remarks that due to the illegal foreigners and infiltration of people of other parts of India, the Assamese people have already turned in to minority. Besides in lower Assam the 36 constituencies are already going out of hand of the Assamese people. The demands the central and state government, to initiate immediate step for declaration Tai-ahom, Moran, Motok, Chutia, Koch-Rajbanshi and tea community of the state for scheduled tribe status or to face agitation.
